PokerNews Freebuy 2nd Chance $2500

New and existing PokerStars players who created their accounts via PokerNews can play for a share of $2,500 every month
Promotion has ended

PokerNews readers who created their PokerStars accounts via our links and who used our marketing codes during the creation of those accounts, are invited to play in a monthly tournament with a $2,500 prize pool.

Each of these special PokerNews Freebuy 2nd Chance tournaments are played as no-limit hold'em on nine-handed tables, see everyone sit with 2,500 chips, play to 10-minute blinds and they only cost a single StarsCoin to enter once you have had your ticket credited to your account.

The second chance element of the tournament gives anyone who busts from the tournament during the first hour or play another shot at the prize pool. Should you bust during the first hour of the tournament, you can reenter for one StarsCoin and continue your quest to win a share of the $2,500 prize pool.

Set your alarms for 3:05 p.m. ET on the following days if you want to play in the PokerNews Freebuy 2nd Chance tournaments:

  • Dec. 17, 2017

If you do not already have a PokerStars account, follow these simple steps and you will be up and running in next to no time.

  • Click here to open PokerStars in a new tab
  • Sign up for a free account
  • Enter the marketing code "PNEWS"
  • Use the code "STARS600" at your first deposit
  • Register for the event once your ticket is credited, which happens on the Friday before the freeroll begins

Players who made their first deposits at PokerStars after January 2016 to today will receive a ticket and are reminded that they can also play in a monthly $2,500 freeroll; head to this page for more details.
